This Ritter Sport Amarena Kirsch is a European limited edition summer flavor from last year, apparently. I was lucky enough to get a free sample of one from the Gourmet Grand Dame at Sweets and Snacks.
Kirsch is cherry, and I think Amarena Kirsch is a flavor of ice cream that you can get in Germany.
The filling of this bar was quite pretty, a pale pink cream flecked with deeper red bits of freeze dried cherry. It provided a nice contrast with the chocolate brown.
It’s been hot in NC lately, so my chocolate had gone pretty soft. It melted onto my posterboard during my photoshoot.
Most of the flavor came from the creamy filling. The cherry bits brought a cornflake textured crunch and the finishing flavor of maraschino cherry, while the pink portion tasted of creamy dairy.
This did a great job capturing the flavor of vanilla ice cream with cherries mixed in. I didn’t get much chocolate flavor because the cherries were so powerful, but I think I’m okay with that. After all, cherry’s in the name!
An OM for a flavorful and uniquely flavored treat.
